Not to brag or anything, but I've got the best husband ever. He does the laundry, shares dinner duty, fixes small plumbing crises, mows the lawn with 3 kids attached to his body, takes me to see Glen Hansard sing, loves me and my quirks. Hard to find another guy like that and I hope I never have to.
Our 13th anniversary is coming up in August and I've had my eye out for a little sentimental gift I can make or buy for him. I like this one because it is so simple and when you've been married a while, sometimes less is more. Anyway, I might change the wording a little bit, but I like the idea of a short love phrase and the date when it became official. This might be a nice accent pillow for our bedroom (since nobody else really needs to see the gushy stuff, right?). Sweet.
Then, since I was a little printer monkey this morning (I was hand-feeding some envelopes, which means I have about 15 seconds to wait until another envelope goes in. It's perfect for surfing my favorite blogs sans guilt!) I found some other really personal and sentimental gift ideas if you're in the market for that kind of thing.
